Jamaica Farewell
Harry Belafonte

Down the way where the nights are gay
And the sun shines daily on the mountain top
I took a trip on a sailing ship
But when I reached Jamaica, I made a stop

But I'm sad to say I'm on my way
Won't be back for many a day
My heart is down, head is turning around
I've got to leave a little girl in Kingston town

Down in the market you can hear
Women cry out while on their heads they bear
Akky rice and fish on ice
And the rum is fine any time of the year

But I'm sad to say I'm on my way
Won't be back for many a day
My heart is down, head is turning around
I've got to leave a little girl in Kingston town

Sounds of Iaughter everywhere
And the dancing girls sway to and fro
I must declare, my heart is there
Although I've been from Maine to Mexico

But I'm sad to say I'm on my way
Won't be back for many a day
My heart is down, head is turning around
I've got to leave a little girl in Kingston town

Mydoctor appointment with Dr. Dragoo went very well and I could not have asked for better care......however the diagnosis was not what I hoped for😩😩. The arm is definitely back in the socket where it needs to be, but there is a fracture that must be surgically repaired.  Dr. Dragoo brought in the surgeon that will do this repair and he talked us through the procedures that are recommended.  This will be done at a hospital.  They hope to go in with a wire and snag the piece, which is a decent size and very likely will be able to be put in place, but if they can not successfully do this they will open the shoulder up and put a plate and screws in to do it correctly.  Long story short......either way it will be a LONG recovery time.....estimated to be 6 months or longer of healing and physical therapy and a goal of a year to have it back in good working condition. 

Not the news I was praying for😩😘

Pleasant dreams.

Good morning..

Bubble ,thank you for the new start page and the giggles. Someone in this house paints that way...he said he doesn't mind painting floors as it all falls that way. Love the Conway saying.

Mother nature is playing a trick on us with snow....not a lot but it is still falling..
Need to pick up some groceries  for us and my friend ,then home to work. Made muffins yesterday and put some in the hidy hole to go with your morning coffee..

Jenny, not what you wanted to hear but you are in the best of care. Pray that it will be an easy surgery for you and fast healing time.

Enjoy your day and stay safe..

Well, we have a nice new, cleaned up and redecorated place, thanks to BUBBLE.  I too, like the Conway saying but now I have to go find my Harry Belafonte CD with that song on it!  Many years ago, I had the privilege of hearing HB in concert in Philadelphia and he sang that song.  He was very good in concert and I still enjoy the CD.

AMY, we had an "April Fools' Day Snowfall" overnight too.  It didn't last but it was still coming down cold and wet when I took Mickie out around 6 a.m.  And the temp has only got up to 34º so far today.  Not going to be a good day, I think!

Frankie spent the night here and she's still sleeping....or maybe sleeping again.  I think I heard her up sometime during the night.  Cooper managed to join us for breakfast and has been out once but he's waiting for her to go for a walk. 

I'm off to the kitchen to try to make AMY'S Bread Pudding.  Frankie got me apples when she did her shopping yesterday so I'm ready.  And I can almost taste it!

I wish you all a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow.

Great graphics and text, Bubble, thank you so much for all your thoughtfulness and talent.

Cats are needing care, Tom & Callie wanted out after their salmon breakfast but want back in. They forgot to use the litter box before going out & don't like using the yard.  :o  Kind of nippy out and they are used to sitting on or by a furnace vent all night. Supposed to be warmer all week end & next week. Tiger doesn't care much about going out unless I'm going to walk them to the river. She will sit at the sliding door to watch the others but when I start to open to let her out she just runs off like this is some kind of game. I don't lead a very wild & crazy life.  :crazy2:

Happy April Fools day everyone.   This
is a good sign... April is the beginning of
much warmer weather with better days
ahead. 

Jenny,  I am so sorry to hear of your
broken shoulder and hope that the easiest
surgery will make for a speedier recovery... 

Not fair...  One year of Covid followed by
one more year recuperating from a fall.   NOT FAIR!

Wishing everyone a better day today

Not very good news, Jenny.  I'm sorry.  But, I'm glad you like your doctor.

Chilly and windy here but no snow.  Sun is shining brightly.

Take care, All.

I have AMY'S Apple Struesel Bread Pudding in the oven.  I'm going to have it for my lunch.  However, I had two problems to solve while putting it together.  One was easy and one was unsolvable!  AMY suggested that I might want to cut the recipe in half and since I've been doing that anyway, I cut it.  It was fine until I got to the line that said,  "3 eggs"  I don't know any way to cut an egg in half!  Does anyone else here know that? 

The other problem was the raisins.  I didn't have any!  And my first thought was, "I guess it will be OK without them."  And then my eyes lighted on a bag of dried cranberries.  So that's what took the place of the raisins! 

I'll let you know how it all tastes after lunch!

JENNY, at least when I broke my arm it was right at the beginning of the shutdown not at the end of it!  I didn't even notice the shutdown for severaly months!  I hope your time passes quickly and that your pain is mostly unnoticeable.  Prayers coming your way.

Good morning, it's only two above this morning with an expected high of sixteen. Tomorrow we are said to return to the twenties and thirties with snow until the tenth. Not what I wanted to hear, nor I expect others. Winter seems to have a strong grip on us this year and isn't letting go.

Other than that, no real news. More people are getting cases of Covid again altho no new deaths. People open things back up, and the disease flares up again. Monday, we had two cases and fifty-eight on Tuesday. Officials are saying that only the large number of vaccinations has saved us from much worse.

Sandy

As I mentioned,  last weeek I went out
and went to Trader joes and Good Will...  so this week
I have put my order into Hannaford and Kelly will be
picking up and bringing it to me.  Just as
she has been doing this past year of Covid.   

I wanted to go back out again but as Patricia mentioned,
getting out too fast could be very dangerous for all of
us...   so I opted to get back to being very very careful. 
As that  has worked so well for all of us here
in Maine.       

Being careful will be my top priority
from now on.   

Peace
Sandy

THANK YOU for your kind a supportive words EVERYFRIEND ❣️

Happy Maunday Thursday / April Fools Day. Sun is shining and we are going to have some beautiful days ahead.  It is so very hard to get out of my house with steps, but I would love to go outside and soak in some sunshine. 

I have heard the issues of Covid continue and it scares me that so many places are opening up totally....and masks are no longer required😳😳 It is up to US to take care of ourselves and do what we feel comfortable with. 

SANDY, I am thinking pretty much what you said....."NOT FAIR"!!
And yes,I, too wish my time of this recovery would have been during Covid and not have to be a shut in again like we have been, JANE.

WE ALL KNOW that life is not one bit fair at some times and yet at any given moment we must open our eyes and see how lucky or blessed we are as many others are so much worse off than we are😂

My surgery and Michele's were both scheduled this morning.  Michele's is on for a week from today.  She will be in the hospital fo 5 to 7 days, unfortunately not at a close facility for Dave to easily get to....they will be putting rods and plates in to stabilize her spine.  I have not heard a recovery time but I am pretty sure it will be a long one.  😩😢🙏

Mine is scheduled for a week from tomorrow at a very close hospital to our home.  Mine is on my Dad's 97th Birthday.......guess I will not be forgetting the date of it ever! 

BUBBLE, thank you for our nice new SS.  WONDERFUL sayings and truisms  you have shared with us.  HUGS.

PEACE 💐 LOVE 🌷 ALL AROUND

Well, AMY's Apple struesel dessert was and is very good but I think the next time I make it, I won't cut the liquid in half.  I remember my grandmother's bread pudding being wetter and I'm sure the regular recipe (uncut) for this one must be wetter.  I'm going to leave the liquids the way they are and cut the rest of the stuff and see what happens.  Frankie took a piece of it home with her to have with her supper.  She promised to let me know what she thinks.  It doesn't really matter because I'm hooked!

I guess I should have said "Good Night" when I was in here at 4 oclock!  Oh well!  Good Night to everyone whether you're in here or not.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy Spring day, tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

 JaneS well I hope you are getting good rest and your sleep you said you are going for. wish I was also, but not so. we are going for our third day in court today.Lawler says things are going  good In our favour. but I am still stressed out any way. Bob told our son in law yesterday he was not going to kick us out of our house even if we loose in court. all I have to say to that is why he did not let us Pay him back and get it back  in our Name and leave us alone. we still need all the prayers you can give in our favor.

Good morning...

We are back to the chilly weather ,18° but it is going to be a nice sunny day. :thumbup:

Made pastry yesterday and will do some baking today and work about the house. Seems housework is never ending.

Jane, I agree ,I like more "custard" in my bread pudding too in fact I whipped up some custard to put over top of the pudding.

Lloyd, that man will pay for what he has put you through...one way or another. Prayers that all works out in your favour.

Jenny, at least you do not have to wait long and can soon be on the road to recovery. Prays that all goes well for both you and Michele. She never fails to amaze me.

Phyllis, windy and cold here too...but soon the warmer weather will be here to stay .
Patricia, with that cold weather your snow will want to stay until June!!



Best put that egg in my boot and beat it...sure wish we would hear from Joy and Gloria.

Enjoy your day and stay safe

Good Morning everyone. Thanks AMY, I never slept well again, Kept thinking what and how to get it to the judge, Oh well today will settle it one way or the other. I know god will have his way, I just hope it is our way, I love people and just want to help where I can. my grand son heard Bob tell someone he was going to not kick us out even if we lost in court. well I jus wonder why he is doing this then. all we were trying to do was pay back the $$ he has put out and get our place back. I am 83 years of age and ben suggested to quit driving.
I would be satisfied to do that for the most part. Grand son or daughter would one or the other would gladly take us where we need to go, one of our two daughter's would one. we have both daughter's Live close, One or the other of there spouse's would take us where we need to go. Have a good day see you later.

Good Morning Everyfriend1  We woke up to snow on the ground today!  I'm not in favor or snow in April and when it leaves, I hope it stays away until winter is due back.  I also dislike winter coats in April!  I don't mind a jacket but I'm really tired of winter coats etc.

I wish you all a good day...better than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow!

Everyfriend
  Here's to Easters spent remembering what the holiday is really about: peace, forgiveness, love,  having endured a year + of so many uncertainties and were not out of the woods yet.
  However, hang on a little longer and the true rejoining will await us vaccinated or not wear a mask, social distance and wash wash wash
    Rejoice silently or with safe people...Pray soon we can dance with the devil being virus free and it vanishing from the world.

Good morning from a chilly Interior at minus eight. We were scheduled to have a low of thirteen and a high of seventeen, but someone missed the memo. We are still having snow even while it tries to melt. I have never seen snow remaining at Easter altho the news says it has happened in the past.

I'm still recovering at seven weeks, but I've noticed the dampness and barometric pressure have more to do with that than my injury. I'm hoping that all of us are more careful and have an easier and faster recovery.

I'm going to attempt to go to the bank and pay some bills this next week. I'm seemingly fine until I try to stay on my feet any length of time, but that may mean more mini exercises.

Jenny, you and Michele have been on my mind, and I'm hoping for good news from your coming appointments.

Amy, don't mention the snow remaining! Here, everyone is so sick of it!

Amy

We are running on generator power at the moment here..Thank goodness for the generator!! Power should be back on by 12.30 or so.

Patricia, we still have some snow that was piled up by the snow blower but that is about it.. Do you take your rollator with you when you shop? At least if you have it, it would be a place to sit and rest a bit.

JANE!! Please keep the snow your way..

Amy, I don't have a rollator. I have a very basic walker that the hospital is overcharging me for. Since March fifth, I haven't been out of my building when a senior agency gave me a quick to and from home to the bank and back.


Shirley

Stopping by to say "Good Night, Sweet Dreams and God Bless".... Going to bed early but will check weather & decide if cats should stay out all night or all come in for the night if rain or too cold. Wishing all a wonderful Easter week-end, perfect weather & all.  :thumbup: :wave:  :tup:  :rosegal:

I'm heading off to bed also.  My eyes have a bad case of the "Slamshuts" again today and I'm going to give in to them.  I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy Spring day tomorrow.  And may God bless us every one!

Picking up some hen fruit in town then home to play with laundry and bake.

good Morning everyone. well we had the last day of a three day court battle yesterday, Now is wait and see what the judge has to say. and that will be several days later now. I say once again get legal counsel first and get it properly documented, witness will purger them selves and there is nothing you can say you have to just set still and keep your mouth shut, I know I got called down two or three times and told I could be escorted out of the court room. you have to weight and tell your Lawler what was that bothered you. and let him introduce it Later and that may be too Late the damage is already done. Have a great day. see you later.
